Stockton president Dr. Herman Saatkamp and LPGA golfer Sandra Gal cut the ribbon on the new Turtle Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club on Tuesday, May 28.
GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club recently unveiled the Turtle Course — a first-of-its-kind, nine-hole, professionally manicured 100 percent bent-grass putting course.
Named in honor of the diamondback terrapins (pictured below) that inhabit Seaview’s famed Bay Course every summer, the Turtle Course is built and maintained to the same superior standards as the resort’s two championship golf courses. It was created to provide a fun yet challenging putting experience for golfers and non-golfers alike, while establishing a new form of resort entertainment for Seaview’s hotel guests, group-meeting and conference attendees.
The Turtle Course provides the look and feel of actually being out on the course as it gently slopes and turns up and down hills. The Par 21 course features nine distinct and challenging holes for golfers, families, juniors and even non-golfers who may not be ready to take on the Bay or Pines courses, but who want to enjoy an easier, more relaxed golfing experience.
“The Turtle Course is the perfect complement to the golfing experience and the overall resort amenities here at Seaview,” says Kevin DeDonato, director of golf at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club. “No other golf facility in South Jersey, and no other resort in the Northeast, offers a putting experience like the Turtle Course. Our hotel guests are going to love it, and it will also be an ideal group entertainment and team building activity for meetings and conferences taking place at the resort.”
“The new meticulously manicured Turtle Course, which offers a challenging nine-hole putting experience complete with slopes and turns, will provide an enjoyable recreational activity to golfers and non-golfers alike,” says Stockton president Herman Saatkamp.
The Turtle Course is available for individual play at $5 per person, per round, and is complimentary for resort guests and members. The Turtle Course is also available for group play and special tournament events starting at 20 players. For more information, visit seaviewgolf.com or contact the golf shop at (609) 748-7680.
